This book is written against the widespread assumption of a supersessionist conception of history.  Despite the radical transformations wrought by modernity, the Reformation era continues to influence the present in profound ways.  Once the past is gone, it is not necessarily over.  This has implications for how historians think about change over time, some aspects of historical causality, and how historical fields are construed chronologically.
